    Does anyone know if the Compressor, air, 105 cu.ft. capacity, 4 wheel is a truck or trailer mounted unit? I am thinking it is a truck, but what size of truck? I would appreciate any help.

    Otto has taken over at least part of the mainenance. I wouldn't be surprised to see Opana adding more material from the grave though.

    This is the standard 105 cfm air compressor fitted to the CCKW-353 truck, usually manufactured by Le Roi corporation

    The same compressor could be trailer mounted as well.

    The compressor truck or trailer comes with a variety of pneumatic tools like jackhammers, drills, chainsaws, hammers, etc., for heavy duty construction work.
